To be used in conjunction with this race: Ogre Wolf (3.5e Creature).
Author's Note: the General idea behind this was combine a monster I saw on a website and fully adapt it for 3.5 play. I used the Norse for much of their society as I thought that since they come from a frozen area that would be most appropriate.
